oVirt 4.4.6 Third Release Candidate is now available for testing

The oVirt Project is pleased to announce the availability of oVirt 4.4.6
Third Release Candidate for testing, as of April 8th, 2021.

This update is the sixth in a series of stabilization updates to the 4.4
How to prevent hosts entering emergency mode after upgrade from oVirt 4.4.1

Note: Upgrading from 4.4.2 GA or later should not require re-doing these
steps, if already performed while upgrading from 4.4.1 to 4.4.2 GA. These
are only required to be done once.

Due to Bug 1837864 <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1837864> -
Host enter emergency mode after upgrading to latest build

If you have your root file system on a multipath device on your hosts you
should be aware that after upgrading from 4.4.1 to 4.4.6 you may get your
host entering emergency mode.

In order to prevent this be sure to upgrade oVirt Engine first, then on
your hosts:


   Remove the current lvm filter while still on 4.4.1, or in emergency mode
   (if rebooted).


   Upgrade to 4.4.6 (redeploy in case of already being on 4.4.6).

   Run vdsm-tool config-lvm-filter to confirm there is a new filter in

   Only if not using oVirt Node:
   - run "dracut --force --add multipath” to rebuild initramfs with the
   correct filter configuration




   If you want to try oVirt as quickly as possible, follow the instructions
